Manchester United secured their first win of the 2022/23 Premier League season on Monday, beating Liverpool 2–1 at Old Trafford.
Erik ten Hag showed courage to bench the likes of Luke Shaw, Harry Maguire and Cristiano Ronaldo and the Dutchman should stick to his guns on Saturday.
David De Gea is slowly adapting to Ten Hag’s style of play, coming off the line on several occasions against Liverpool. The Spaniard deserves to keep his place.
A new-look defense featured against Jurgen Klopp’s men and the same back-four should play against Southampton. Diogo Dalot, Raphael Varane, Lisandro Martinez and Tyrell Malacia were sensational at Old Trafford.
Scott McTominay drew special praise from the manager on Monday but the Scot is likely to make way for Casemiro with the Brazilian lining up alongside Christian Eriksen and Bruno Fernandes.
Anthony Martial, who made his first appearance of the season at Old Trafford on Monday, should be leading the attack on Saturday, flanked by Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho — Man United’s goalscorers against Liverpool.
How Man United should line up vs Southampton
4-2-3-1: De Gea; Dalot, Varane, Martinez, Malacia; Casemiro, Eriksen; Sancho, Bruno, Rashford; Martial.
